We are pleased to formally announce KoopaTV's FIFTH browser-based, free Flash game: Soviet Missile Run! Soviet Missile Run is a true platforming game, taking place while the Soviet Union was still a thing. Platform on missiles as you infiltrate past Soviet soldiers to deactivate the missile factory, and cripple the Soviet Union's ability to take over the world!
|Soviet Missile Run, presented by KoopaTV.org. Just in time for 2017!|
Here's what the title screen looks like!
You play as Varya, a quadruple agent (possibly quintuple, sextuple, or even more) born in the Soviet Union but flipped by the Central Intelligence Agency of the United States. Varya is on a mission to destroy Soviet Russia's biggest missile factory, and starts her journey fainting at the sight of a giant missile. She (and you, as the player) will have to get used to missiles very fast, since she'll be jumping on them and using them as platforms very high in the sky! There's scary Soviet soldiers, a captain with possible romantic sub-texts, and a big blue boss man in her way!
|Varya's character introduction.|
Ready to get started? Well, unlike many other companies’ game announcements, but entirely like all of KoopaTV's game announcements, we have released Soviet Missile Run for your gaming pleasure. It is available RIGHT NOW, right below the page break! (Please be using a Flash-enabled device and activate Adobe Flash.)
If you would like to play full-screen, click here. ...Don't right-click the embed or you'll lose control.
Soviet Missile Run features several platforming stages, a minigame, a multi-phased boss fight with creative missile usage, and for the first time in KoopaTV history, an interactive credits level! Soviet Missile Run has full voice-acting, and since it takes place in the Soviet Union, many of the characters are speaking in RUSSIAN! You can choose whether or not you want English sub-titles.
Soviet Missile Run also returns the tradition of KoopaTV's games featuring an original full-length song, also named “Soviet Missile Run”. Get this: It is in multiple renditions in the game. Not just one, but MULTIPLE.
The game is packed with detail and production values. It's shorter than KoopaTV's previous games, which allowed us to spend more time on those finer details. The game feels great to control and play, which is how a platformer should feel like.
Soviet Missile Run is also KoopaTV's first videogame where we started off with a gameplay concept (a platformer utilising the Donut Lift platforms from Super Mario World — platforms that would fall after you've stepped on it), and then the game was made around it. This is opposed to KoopaTV's other games, where they started from a political philosophy we wanted to express with a game, and then we came up with gameplay.
That's not to say Soviet Missile Run is devoid of messaging. It just took a backseat during development. I hope you find it fun, and we will be posting a lot more about Soviet Missile Run in the weeks and months to come! (Unfortunately for us and probably fortunately for you, we can't make 17 strategy guides from this game.)

|Soviet Missile Run isn't all platforming:|
Later in the game, you'll need to defuse a big missile by playing a minigame!

How will she handle it this time?
|Soviet Missile Run is packed with cutscenes featuring Russian-language voice-acting, |
with your choice of whether or not to have sub-titles!
If you have any technical trouble playing the game, stop playing it on a piece of garbage, because it has the second-lowest file size of any of KoopaTV's games, only more than Defend Anita Sarkeesian. If you have any difficulty-related trouble playing the game, pay attention to the many contextual clues in the game, and be observant of what's going on around you. Varya has no one to depend on but herself, so be alert!
Look forward to Soviet Missile Run winning Best PC Game of 2017 in KoopaTV's Game of THAT Year 2017, coming up after 2017 ends. In the meantime, please enjoy the game, and you can bet that it will get special provisions in such KoopaTV initiatives like the KoopaTV Loyalty Rewards Program, and KoopaTV's Feedback Forms and Quizzes, starting in January 2018.
